Artifact: Andover Museum

I recently saw an exhibition called Artifact, at Andover museum. The exhibition showcased the work of five contemporary artists. A lot of the work was related to the idea of the museum and the artefacts in a museum.

 Kimvi Nguyen - Label Series 
This was one of those interesting pieces which changes depending on your perspective. The idea seems to be increasing in popularity, although I haven't seen it done like this before. This piece was also amazing to touch, very soft.

Louisa Minkin - Blazen for the Wasteland & Looking at Art
Louisa was my tutor during university and the first piece is exactly what I would expect from her. The series: 'Looking at Art' was understated yet beautifully executed and reminded me of visits to the Natural History Museum.

Tom Mortimer - Head collection
(This photo really doesn't do the work justice)
I've not seen much of Tom's work before, but enjoyed looking at all of the heads, displayed like museum pieces. They very much give you the impression that they would be interesting to touch and yet you can't lay a finger on them.

Jeff Phegley - Celestial Ground Theory
This installation was amazing and extremely surreal, the shadows which the wall piece made added another dimension. In truth I had no idea what to make of it all.
